Farida—an emergent talent hailing from the modest Norwegian city of Gjøvik—is gearing up for the release of her debut mixtape The 25th Hour this spring. Today she has shared a promising new cut off that project, "Three Weeks."

A tale told through raw piano and entangled harmonies, "Three Weeks" is about love and loss and what is learning when a relationship waxes and wanes. I thank you for the failure, I get some strength you remain a stranger," Farida concludes.

"I believe the period of three weeks is long enough to fall in love, but also short enough to get over it and move on," she explained in an email to The FADER. "That's basically what happens in the song."
